Motorola RAZR MAXX was spotted for the first time last month when several photos taken with the device have been leaked in the wild. Then, the smartphone showed up in Verizon System with a December 15 release date attached to it.
Today, Motorola decided to go official with the RAZR MAXX, at the International Consumer Electronics Show, which is held in Las Vegas, US.
Motorola RAZR MAXX seems to be a cloned Motorola RAZR, but with a much better battery. In fact, Motorola Mobility touts the RAZR MAXX
as the “longest-lasting” smartphone available in the market.
The smartphone features an impressive 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 15.8 days of standby time or up to 21 hours of talk time.
Due to the high capacity battery, the RAZR MAXX is a bit thicker and heavier than the Motorola RAZR, at 8.99mm thickness and 145g (battery included) weight.
The rest of the features seem to be similar, including the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system. Just like the RAZR, the MAXX is slated for an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade sometime this year.
The smartphone is made of Dupont KEVLAR fiber, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass display and a “force field of water-repellent nanoparticles.”
It comes with the same brilliant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced capacitive touchscreen display that boasts 540 x 960 pixels resolution and 16 million colors support.
Motorola RAZR MAXX
is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and packs 16GB ROM (11.5GB user available), 1GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB, 16GB memory card included).
LTE and Wi-Fi support is included as well, along with dual cameras (8-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing photo snapper) and Bluetooth 4.0.
The RAZR MAXX is expected to arrive at Verizon stores and online in the coming weeks and will be available for as low as $300 with a new two-year agreement.
